I've decided to series link the Sat morning repeat and save myself having to FWD through 15 minutes of ads! :tv:

Very interesting programme.  Lots of input from one of the APT designers, Kit Spackman, who I met at Bristol show a couple of weeks ago, and a couple of shots of the GW main line next to EGLM.  Looking forward to Part 2.

Most of you know I'm no great fan of 'multi coloured worms' but I have to say I found this programme fascinating probably because, apart from the APT v HST rivalry, I knew very little about the 125.
I now feel I ought to be buying a model one in the original blue/yellow livery but it would need to be a Farish item.
